BOOTH.

IONA START WITH WHAT WE

LEARNED.

I'VE SEEN SOME WHO OPPOSED

THIS AND DISMISS IT.

YES HE MAY HAVE BEHAVED BADLY

BUT IT'S NOT IMPEACHABLE.

LET'S WAIT TILL THE ELECTION

TO HASH IT OUT.

OKAY, EXCEPT THAT'S NOT HOW

THIS IS GOING TO GO DOWN.

IT LOOKS LIKE THIS WILL END UP

WITH THE TRIAL IN THE SENATE.

AS WE MOVE TOWARD THAT, I WANT

ANYONE WHO WATCHES THE SHOW TO

BE WELL INFORMED ABOUT THE

DETAILS OF THE ACTUAL EVIDENCE

, NOT THE TALKING POINTS, THE

EVIDENCE.

WE HAD A LOT OF NEW EVIDENCE

THIS WEEK AND I WANT TO TAKE

YOU THROUGH IT.

HERE'S WHAT HASN'T CHANGED.

THIS WEEK WE HAD NEW

CONFIRMATION FROM AN OLD

FRIEND OF THE REAL MOTIVATION

FOR ALL THE.

>> HE KNOWS HE'S AN

ILLEGITIMATE PRESIDENT.

>> HE KNOWS THAT HE'S AN

ILLEGITIMATE PRESIDENT.

>> THEY BEEN WANTING TO GET

TRUMP IN 2016.

THEY WANT TO REMOVE THIS

DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED

PRESIDENT BY NONDEMOCRATIC

MEANS, REGARDLESS OF THE

EVIDENCE.

SO HELPFUL OF HILARY TO

CONFIRM THAT THIS WEEKEND SO

MUCH FOR THEIR PIOUS LECTURES

ON DEMOCRACY AND THE RULE OF

LAW.

LAST SUNDAY WE WENT THROUGH

THE IMPEACHMENT CHARGES.

THE FOREIGN MEADOWLAKE CLAIM

IS A JOKE.

IT HAPPENS EVERY DAY IN

WASHINGTON THROUGH FOREIGN

GOVERNMENT LOBBYING.

THE DEMOCRATS ARE UP TO THEIR

NECK IN FOREIGN MODELING.

NANCY PELOSI TOOK MONEY FROM

UKRAINE LOBBYISTS.

THEY HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH IT

WHEN IT SALACIOUS OF THEIR

CAMPAIGN AND JOBS FOR THEIR

BENEFIT WHEN ASKING UKRAINE

FOR DIRT AND WHEN IT'S FUNDING

A DOSSIER TO BRING TRUMP

DOWN.

IN ANY CASE, ELECTED LEADERS

ALWAYS WEAR THEIR GOVERNMENT

HAT AND THAT OF A POLITICIAN.

EVERY CONVERSATION, EVERY

MEETING THERE THINKING ABOUT

POLITICS.

THE IDEA THAT DONALD TRUMP CAN

MAKE AN ABUSE OF POWER IS A

JOKE.

THEY ALL DO IT.

I THOUGHT MYSELF WITH

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND DAVID

CAMERON.

TODAY, THE IMPEACHMENT

FANATICS RECITE DIRT ON THE

PROTOCOL ARRIVAL BUT WITH

UKRAINE AND BIDEN IT'S NOT

JUST ANY RIVAL.

IF HE WAS ASKING THEM TO LOOK

FOR ANDREW YANG WHO WORKED ON

ONE OF HIS STARTUPS THAT WOULD

BE DIFFERENT.

WE WILL LAID OUT FOR YOU IN

DETAIL IN TONIGHT SWAMP

WATCH.

IS THE FORMER VICE PRESIDENT

AND HIS FAMILY ACTED CORRECTLY

IN ANOTHER COUNTRY.

[INAUDIBLE]

THE REASON THERE SO UP IN ARMS

ABOUT IT IS THAT IT'S EXPOSING

A CENTRAL FEATURE OF THEIR

SWAMPY BUSINESS MODEL.

WHAT'S NOT OKAY IS USING

GOVERNMENT POLICY AND TAXPAYER

DOLLARS TO PUSH FOR AN

INVESTIGATION IF THE

MOTIVATION IS PURELY

POLITICAL.

THE ONLY REALLY SERIOUS

CHARGES THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP

DID THAT BY WITHHOLDING

MILITARY AID UNLESS THEY

PROMISE TO INVESTIGATE BIDEN

AND HE DID IT FOR PURELY

POETICAL ENDS.

LAST WEEK I TOLD YOU THERE

WERE THREE REASONS.

TRUMP IS A WELL-KNOWN AID.

ROB PORTLAND BACKED UP HIS

ACCOUNT AND ACCORDING TO THE

NEW YORK TIME, UKRAINIAN

DIDN'T KNOW THE AIDE WAS HELD

UP UNTIL A MONTH AFTER.

HOW CAN THERE BE A QUID PRO

QUO WHEN ONCE I DIDN'T KNOW

ABOUT IT.

WE'VE LEARNED MORE ABOUT IT

THIS WEEK FROM SENIOR DIPLOMAT

TEXT MESSAGES.

TURNED OUT IT WAS SEEN BY

STRONG U.S. OFFICIALS AS PART

OF A PURELY POLITICAL QUID PRO

QUO.

HERE'S BILL TAYLOR, ACTING

AMBASSADOR TO UKRAINE AND I

SAT ON THE PHONE I THINK IT'S

CRAZY TO WITHHOLD SECURITY FOR

HELP WITH A POLITICAL

CAMPAIGN.

THE DEMOCRATS THINK THAT'S

THEIR SMOKING GUN.

THE REPLY WAS THIS, I BELIEVE

YOU'RE INCORRECT ABOUT

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S INTENTIONS.

HE'S BEEN CRYSTAL CLEAR, NO

QUID PRO QUO ANY KIND.

NOW LOOK.

I'M JUST BEING HONEST.

THOSE TAX ON THEIR OWN WITHOUT

CONTEXT SHOOK MY FAITH IN THE

WHITE HOUSE POSITION AND OF

COURSE THE TRUMP HATING MEDIA

WERE ALL OVER IT.

THEY LEFT ME WANTING TO KNOW

TWO THINGS WERE THEY TOLD THE

MILITARY AID WAS BEING HELD UP

AND WHAT WAS THE INTENTION TO

INVESTIGATE BIDEN ON THE

GROUNDS OF CORRUPTION OR

BECAUSE HE WAS A CLINICAL

RIVAL.

NOW, AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT,

WE'VE GOT MORE EVIDENCE ON

EXACTLY THOSE POINTS.

THE TEXT MESSAGES WAS GIVEN TO

CONGRESS BY KIRK, OUR SPECIAL

ENVOY TO UKRAINE.

HE ALSO GAVE HIM AN 11 PAGE

WITNESS STATEMENT.

SOME CALL THAT STATEMENT

DEVASTATING FOR THE PRESIDENT,

POINTING TO THE FACT THAT THEY

DEBUNKED CLAIMS BY RUDY

GIULIANI ABOUT UKRAINE'S ROLE

AND JOE BIDEN'S ROLE.

IT'S NOT THE WHOLE STORY.

IT'S NOT EVEN THE MAIN STORY.

HIS STATEMENT IS INDEED

DEVASTATING.

BUT NOT TO THE PRESIDENT.

IF YOU READ THE WHOLE THING,

THE STATEMENT IS DEVASTATING

FOR THE DEMOCRATS.

IT PRETTY MUCH EXONERATES THE

PRESIDENT ON THE MAIN

IMPEACHMENT CHARGES.

KURT HAD BEEN INVOLVED IN

EVERY ASPECT OF THE STORY.

HE HAS BEEN DESCRIBED BY TRUMP

CRITICS AS AN HONEST BROKER.

LISTEN TO HIS ACTUAL EVIDENCE

ON PAGE THREE HE SAYS AT NO

TIME WAS I AWARE OF OR TOOK

PART IN AN EFFORT TO URGE

UKRAINE TO INVESTIGATE FORMER

VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN.

FROM THE EXTENSIVE TEXT

MESSAGES I'M PROVIDING WHICH

CONVEY REAL DIALOGUE, VICE

PRESIDENT BIDEN WAS NEVER A

TOPIC OF DISCUSSION.

ON PAGE SIX, DELAYING A

MEETING, A DELAY THAT BASED ON

THE TEXT ALONE, THE MEDIA IS

EVIDENCE OF TRUMP PRESSURING

UKRAINE TO INVESTIGATE BIDEN.

HE SAYS BUT I BELIEVE THE

PRESIDENT LONG-HELD NEGATIVE

VIEW TOWARD UKRAINE WAS

CAUSING HESITATION IN ACTUALLY

SCHEDULING THE MEETING.

NOTHING TO DO WITH

INVESTIGATING BIDEN.

EXACTLY AS HE'S BEEN SAYING.

ON PAGE SEVEN, HE REPORTS ON A

MEETING HE ARRANGED AS RUDY

GIULIANI, AFTER THEY MET THEY

CALL ME TO IT GIVE ME THEIR

IMPRESSIONS.

BOTH WERE POSITIVE.

NEITHER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT

VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN.

BASED JUST ON THE TEXT, THEY

HAVE ZEROED IN ON TALK OF THE

STATEMENT THAT THE U.S. SIDE

ONE OF THE UKRAINIANS TO

MAKE.

AGAIN, THIS IS CITED AS

PRESSURE TO INVESTIGATE

BIDEN.

IT WAS GENERIC I CONVEYED THIS

TO THE AMBASSADOR WHO AGREED.

IN HIS VIEW THE STATEMENT

SHOULD INCLUDE.

[INAUDIBLE]

THERE WAS NO MENTION OF VICE

PRESIDENT BIDEN.

THERE WAS A QUID PRO QUO OF

MILITARY AID.

HERE'S WHAT KURT SAID ON PAGE

NINE OF HIS STATEMENT.

THE ISSUE ALSO CAME UP DURING

THE SAME TIME, I DID NOT

PERCEIVE.

FINALLY ON PAGE TEN WHAT HE

WAS TOLD ABOUT THE PHONE CALL

AND PEOPLE WHO WERE ACTUALLY

ON THE CALL.

I RECEIVED THE GENERAL READOUT

AS WELL AS.

[INAUDIBLE]

THEY ALL THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD

CONGRATULATORY CALL AND

PRESIDENT TRUMP REITERATED,

THE MAN AT THE CENTER OF THIS

DESCRIBED BY TRUMP CRITICS AS

AN HONEST BROKER, SIX TIMES HE

SAID HE SAW NO EVIDENCE OF

EFFORT TO INVESTIGATE HIM AS A

POLITICAL RIVAL OR TO LINK

THAT TO AID IN A QUID PRO

QUO.

THE FACT THAT NO ONE,

LITERALLY NO ONE HAS REPORTED

THIS JUST SHOWS YOU HOW

COMMITTED THE MEDIA ARE TO

THEIR EMPTY TRUMP NARRATIVE.

IT IS ASTONISHING.

THESE PEOPLE ARE DELIBERATELY

MISLEADING YOU.

THEY THEIR CONTEMPT FOR TRUMP

HAS DESTROYED THEIR

PROFESSIONAL JUDGMENT.

IN A WEEK, WHEN WE SAW THE

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE HIT A 50

YEAR LOW, WE WERE REMINDED WHY

AMERICANS CHOSE DONALD TRUMP.

IMMIGRATION BROUGHT UNDER

CONTROL.

JOBS INCREASED.

CHINA CONFRONTED AFTER DECADES

OF SELLOUT AND SURRENDER.

THE DEMOCRAT OBSESSION IS OUT

OF TOUCH AND DECADENT.

PEOPLE WANT SUBSTANCE NOT

SCANDAL.

WE WILL EXPLAIN YOU THE

IMPEACHMENT EVIDENCE FOR HIS

LONG AS THIS GOES ON.

BUT FOR GOD SAKE CAN THE

DEMOCRATS PLEASE JUST GET A

GRIP, AND THIS FASTEN FOCUS ON

HELPING AMERICANS HAVE A

BETTER LIFE.

NOW PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU SHARE
